Version 0.30.0

Because of many changes to existing areas and newly added areas, your world seeds will be re-rolled upon loading a character. This means that previously visited areas will look differently, but you'll keep your waypoints & progression. Things are just not located where you may remember them to be.

Item data system has been upgraded, all items and equipment should automatically be ported to the new system when you load an old character - you really shouldn't notice anything - but if any items are weird, let me know!

Areas:
  • Added a full new chapter - "The Elver War" - complete with a whole 18 new areas filled with new monsters, unique monsters, secrets, quests, and bosses!

  • A new main area
  • New monsters in the later areas

  • Added 4 item sets that are for any class.

  • Many items had their names and/or images updated.
  • Some Legendary and Unique items have had their special properties changed or removed due to being added to the new Item Sets.
  • All equipment now roll stats from the same pools, based on rarity and a randomized modifier. This is because many new items have been added that aren't locked to classes and they needed to provide equally useful base stats for all classes.
  • Warlocks and Wardens should find that you have almost as large healthpools as Berserkers and Templars with new items, but Berserkers and Templars will take less damage due to being close range, so it should even out! (Some polish may be needed)
  • Critical hit chance is now preset on weapons and not related to rarity or chance, but may still be rolled as enchants on most item types (and in this case related to rarity and chance).

    Note: a future update will allow a much broader variety of elemental types on each class' spells - some elements are under-represented at this time
  • Added new enchants for the new stats, +Element power is considered Major and +Element resistance is considered Minor, so you can roll both on the same item
  • Monsters now have a type listed among their mods, for example "Undead" meaning certain base elemental resistance or weakness, in the case of Undead they are weak to Fire. The rest is for you to find out!
  • More types like these will be added over time.
Balancing:
  • Enemies now only scale after your equipment on Casual and Normal difficulties (instead of all, was too easy)
  • Difficulties above Normal have been adjusted and should prove more challenging

  • Champions have a base minimum of 10+difficultybonus% resistance

  • The Experience required has been increased, especially on higher levels
  • Thorns/reflect damage can no longer crit
  • Damage over time effects now have their crit chance determined by their type; bleed 20%, burn 10%, misc 5%, poison 0%
  • It is now slightly harder to find Legendary and Unique equipment without increased +Magic find, overall item quality roll chances has been rebalanced a bit
  • Templar and Berserker have some base resistances to account for them being melee classes. (15% and 10% respectively, to all elements)

  • Robe of Corruption now causes poison damage to attackers, rather than just "damage"
  • Added 7 new Unique items found on Unique monsters spawning randomly in selected areas
Spells:
  • All spells have had an "element" set - increasing the relative element power will increase the damage output of all spells of that element
  • Many passive skills that previously made certain skills deal more damage now instead grants elemental power in the relative element, stacking with any equipment enchants
  • Spells that appear on or over targets and now line of sight based - so if your character can't "see" them, eg behind a wall, you cannot cast at them. The spell will land at whatever is blocking the view instead.
    Note: this is primarily so that Warlock and Warden aren't able to cast spells on other sides of walls - you should still be able to reach enemies hiding behind single pillars (cause otherwise it would be annoying) - consider this feature experimental..

Monsters:
  • Monsters have gained base resistances to various elements

Version 0.22.1:

Spawn hotfix
Can now properly spawn again.




Version 0.22:

General:
  • You can now take Steam screenshots! I look forward to seeing your shots!
  • Sarek the vendor now sells Elixir of the Mind, allowing you to reset your skill allocations
  • Enemy difficulty is now not only scaled to your level, but also to your equipment - but only downwards. So if you have old / low quality equipment, enemies will not grow in strength as fast. This should grant a smoother difficulty cruve and overall better experience!
  • You now have a "gear score" calculated and displayed in the inventory to see how you're doing - it's just a rough calculation but you should try to keep the value as close to 100% as you can
  • Waypoints will spawn closer to the entrance in most areas
  • You can now hold control to buy 10x of stackable items
  • You can now quickly check up to 10 nearby items on the ground that are of Enchanted or higher quality by holding Alt or pressing the left stick on the gamepad (default - can be rebound in the options)
  • You are now less likely to find items for other classes than your own (about half the drops of epic or lower quality should now be guaranteed to suit you, higher quality always suits you)
  • Added an "Extra Ambient Light" option so you can make the overall lightning in the game stronger or weaker to better suit your monitor and room lighting
  • Added lighting check on first time startup (everyone will get it after the update) to configure the "Extra Ambient Light" right away
  • Removed the world scale option for now (causes some problems with low scaling and a massive performance impact if you got a high res monitor)
  • Slightly increased the range on many light sources
  • The way menu buttons (and the majority of the main menu in general) are handled internally was rewritten to better support large resolutions and uncommon aspect ratios (I have very limited testing options myself se please let me know if anything is weird!)
  • Update hero load screen to be fancier and also allow deleting of heroes
  • Collision system updated so you no longer get pushed around by enemies and minions, but you can still push them
  • The main menu now displays the load screen tips on a random rotation
  • A cancel button has been added to the difficulty select menu to exit back to the menu - this is temporary and a proper way to navigate back to a previous menu will be implemented (current system is a bit limited unfortunately, shame on me)
  • Some general touch up to the various interface screens
Areas:
  • The Tunnels are now filled with spider eggs.. be careful
    Spiderlings no longer spawn in The Tunnels
  • Removed the Shrine from the High Priest Altar zone as the boss would sometimes go up and hide behind it (like the coward he is)
Monsters:
  • Spiderlings and bats have had their collision boxes reduced in size so they can flock better
  • The High Priest boss now has Thunder spells added to his attacks!
  • Medella (the blood queen) now has some more sound effects for her spells
Spells:
  • Warlock: Infernal Demon now summons at mouse cursor instead of next to player
Enchants:
  • Enchants have been divided into Major and Minor enchants
  • Items can now roll up to 2 enchants depending on quality - one Major and one Minor
  • Items are also more likely to roll enchants
  • Most enchant descriptions had to be condensed to fit with item descriptions and other enchants - hopefully they still make sense
  • Added new enchant: "Anchoring" - makes you immune to knockback and pull effects. Can be rolled on armors and accessories and is considered a Major enchant

    Added new type of enchant type called "satellites":
    • "Thunderous" - a lightning orb circles the player and casts Chain Lightning at nearby enemies, once per second
    • "Frozen" - a frozen orb circles the player and casts a single Ice Shard at nearby enemies, once per second
    • "Molten" - a molten orb circles the player and casts Firebomb at nearby enemies, once per second
    • "Voodoo" - a poison orb circles the player and poisons enemies that are within ~4 meters for 10 seconds, twice per second
    • "Angelic" - a holy orb circles the player and casts Holy Bolt at nearby enemies, twice per second
      These satellite enchants are available on helms, armors, and accessories of epic quality or higher and are considered Major enchants
Items:
  • Accessories are no longer locked to certain qualities, and only have a minimum quality set. They can now be rolled between their minimum and Epic quality, making many early items more useful later in the game
  • Items with "The" in the name got weird with enchants, so those names have been changed to exclude the "The"
  • Many item descriptions had to be condensed to fit the new double enchant texts
  • Power Ring now rolls movement speed instead of crit rating

    Added new items:
    • Stormforce - accessory, Unique, always rolls the Thunderous enchant
    • Wintertale - accessory, Unique, always rolls the Frozen enchant
    • Demon's Guile - accessory, Unique, always rolls the Molten enchant
    • Bad Voodoo - accessory, Unique, always rolls the Voodoo enchant
    • Ring of Hope - accessory, Unique, always rolls the Angelic enchant

  • Fixed not being able to throw out equipment if you had hovered the item over your inventory first
  • Fixed the marker on the currently selected quest in the quest log causing a hole or transparency in the interface
  • Fixed being stuck in animation after knockback (hopefully for good this time!)
  • Portals should now be cleared from the minimap when they despawn
  • Quest reward items should now always be your level, "random" rewards follow the loot scheme (+-2 levels) but will always fit your class
  • The High Priest boss should now be immune to knockback and pull effects as intended

  • Some enchants are now locked to higher qualities: special damages (like burn, chill, poison etc) are locked to Epic and higher quality items

  • Sarek should no longer sell items of higher than Epic quality
